Before we say goodbye to February, let’s have a look at my five favourite bags spotted on insta this month.

This Saturday Special is all about my favourite bags on instagram in January. And what I’ve loved is the resurgence of the top handle bag in smaller dimensions – suited to these days when we’re carrying less. What is great about a nano top handle bag (and I’m not often heard saying this) is that is can subtly smarten up a casual outfit – and let’s face it we’ve all been rocking the lounge look! So, what a lovely way to step into February, the month of love or if you’re into your pagan or Irish calendars, the official start of Spring – yes, for the Irish, the 1st of Feb is St Brigid’s Day, where traditionally the farmers start to sow seeds as it is the first day of Spring. Before I get too distracted by the many different cultural references, let’s get back to the bags – the top 10 of top handle bags for SS’21.Continue reading “Top of the weekend to you and your bag!”

Something for the weekend is back and it’s great when you get something more for nothing and this weekend, most of us in the northern hemisphere will be enjoying an extra hour as the clocks go back tonight.

Something for the weekend is back for September and instagram has been trawled. And this month it has been all about the four cities’ SS’21 fashion shows; from New York to Paris (with the official opening of Paris on 28 September).
